Thanks so much for your review of your recent dining experience at Lake House Restaurant. We appreciate your comments. We are looking into adding more craft beer selections but we have very limited tap space unfortunately. We are looking at adding more bottle selection though!

We visited the Lakehouse restaurant for my husbands birthday with our 4 year old. We had made a reservation beforehand; given that it was Easter Sunday expecting that it would be busy.

Marija helped us plan my mother’s 80th birthday celebration and it was perfect!

It is a ritual that we go out for dinner on Good Friday, and we usually try to pick unique restaurants.

When the light evenings return, this is a great place to look across Lake Ontario, toward Toronto, while watching the sun go down over Hamilton. When the weather warms up, even better to do this outside on the patio! Great food at "moderate" prices where it's not so noisy that you can't have a conversation over dinner!

We went to Lake House on a Sunday afternoon to celebrate a few family birthdays that were in February and March. There were 11 of us. Needless to say, we were a large group.

Lake House sits on the shore of Lake Ontario. The dining room looks out over the lake where you can watch ships sailing, people fishing, birds soaring over head, swans floating, and on a clear day the skyline of Toronto rises above the lake. The food is suburb. I have eaten there many times and have always enjoyed both lunches... More

My husband and I went to Lake House for the first time last night with some friends. The food was amazing, the staff friendly, efficient and very professional. The meal came quickly, the food was hot, and delicious. The atmosphere is relaxing and lovely.

What can I say, the chicken was undercooked, the steak was overcooked, the sauce on the steak was burnt. The beans were not even cooked at all. The mashed potatoes were like glue, and the lobster was mushy. Worst high-end meal that we have ever experienced. Pasta sauce was also found to be extremely salty. We will not be back.
